If your district series will be hosted on Tabroom.com, you can view step-by-step instructions for how to register here. To check which tabulation software will be used, locate your tournament on this list once the dates have been entered. 

District Series Eligibility

Peak district tournament season is fast approaching—make sure your students are eligible to compete! Unlike other tournaments throughout the year, students may not compete in the tournament without being NSDA members with a Degree of Merit (at least 25 points in the Honor Society). Students who are currently eligible will have a check mark in that column on your team roster.
